BYPASSED: The Erosion of our Cultural and Environmental Landscapes

In 2005, the Tugun Bypass, on the Gold Coast, received Government approvals to proceed with the C4 Route Option, a move that greatly anguished environmentalists and the local Aboriginal community, with its potential to destroy ecologically-sensitive areas and a significant Aboriginal cultural landscape known as "Murraba". Representative of major developments happening throughout Australia, and New South Wales in particular, this decision showed the erosion of years and years of legislation put in place to protect our cultural heritage and environment. This film tells the stories of the local Aboriginal community and environmentalists and of their long and arduous journey to make their voices heard.
